Chelsea to make improved £25m bid for Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater

But Leicester could put up a fight for Drinkwater and demand the £40m Chelsea received from Manchester United for Nemanja Matic.

Conte has already signed four new recruits so far with goalkeeper Willy Caballero, centre-back Antonio Rudiger, midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and striker Alvaro Morata all arriving in recent weeks.

The report details interest in Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Everton's Ross Barkley in addition to Saints defender Virgil Van Dijk.

Leicester are keen to keep hold of the 27-year-old and it is claimed Chelsea's first approach was around £15m below his valuation.

However, the same report says that Chelsea are yet to return with a second bid after failing with an opening offer of just £15m for the England worldwide. The Englishman only contributed a single goal and not even a handful of assists for the Foxes last season, and with restricted playing time at Stamford Bridge it's unlikely that he would develop much with a move.

When asked about the chances of Drinkwater leaving the King Power Stadium this summer, Craig Shakespeare said: 'We don't want to be a selling club, we want to add to it. You have to deal with reality but also keep a calmness about you as well'.

With Lewis Baker heading to Middlesbrough on a season-long loan, as the Telegraph report, Conte is in desperate need for another midfielder and it's believed he will look to step up his pursuit of a top quality central midfielder with three weeks of the transfer window remaining.
